TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - A sixth-inning rally powered Arizona past Harvard in the first round of an NCAA Regional in Tucson late Friday, May 17.

The Wildcats ended up winning 5-1 and will play Auburn in the second round at 3 p.m. Saturday.

With a victory in that game, Arizona would move on to the championship round. A loss would send the Wildcats to a knock out game later Saturday.

Harvard jumped ahead with a solo home run in the first inning.

The Crimson held Arizona at bay until the fourth inning, when the Wildcats scored on a single to left.

The game was tied until the bottom of the sixth, when Arizona scored four runs on four singles.
